15 year old is main suspect in wounding

Investigations are continuing into two separate wounding incidents, including one in which a 15-year-old is a main suspect.

According to a police report, at about 3.30 pm on Friday, a man from Toco Main Road, Balandra, went fishing with his 15-year-old male relative. Police said while fishing, an argument broke out between the two, during which the teen took out a gun and shot his adult male relative twice.

A struggle then ensued and teen allegedly fell overboard. He managed to swim back to the pirogue but without the firearm.
